Variety Attribution : Obverse-Star 2 is attached to the left side of first curl, the only 1794 so found and star 1 is well below this curl. Star 8 is close to L about 1/2 mm., and star 9 distant from Y, about  2 1/2 mm. Star 15 points just above line of bust and is close. Date is a close 7 mm.

Reverse O-105:18 berries, 9 left and 9 right. Leaf is attached to right base of I in AMERICA.
O-105a: Upper portion of eagle very flat and smooth, due to sinking of the die. Die crack from edge through first T in states which appears to cross the eagle and emerge from tip of right wing to edge below ER.
